Sanjay Manjrekar Badly Trolled For Calling Ambati Rayudu & Piyush Chawla Low-Profile Cricketers


Sanjay Manjrekar Badly Trolled For Calling Ambati Rayudu & Piyush Chawla Low-Profile Cricketers

The former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar is known for his controversial statements and he often gets trolled because of them. But it seems that he loves to attract criticism even after he has lost his job of commentator in the BCCI commentary panel. If you remember, last year he called the Indian all-rounder Ravinder Jadeja a “bits and pieces” cricketer and after that, he was trolled badly. The Indian cricketer also gave him a mouthful and BCCI got so upset with him that in March 2020, he was ousted from the commentary panel. Moreover, now he also missed the chance of doing commentary in the IPL 2020.

Once again Sanjay Manjrekar invited the wrath of netizens when he called Ambati Rayudu and Piyush Chawla low-profile cricketers. Both of them play for Chennai Super King (CSK) and in the first match of the IPL 2020 in which CSK played against Mumbai Indians, Rayudu and Chawla played an important role in their team’s win. Batting first, MI posted a decent total of 162 runs on the board in the stipulated 20 overs.

Piyush Chawla was very economical (21 runs in 4 overs) and Ambati Rayudu played a superb innings of 71 runs (48 balls). CSK won the match by 5 wickets with four balls remaining as Faf du Plessis (58*) ensured that he remained on the pitch till his team achieved victory.

After the match, Sanjay Manjrekar took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “So happy for two pretty low profile cricketers Piyush Chawla and Ambati Rayudu. Chawla was sensational with the ball. Bowled the 5th & 16th over too. Rayudu.. well… one of the best IPL innings from him based on quality of shots played! Well done CSK!👏👏👏 #IPL2020”

Calling Piyush Chawla and Ambati Rayudu low profile cricketers did not go well with fans and they trolled him for the choice of his words. Below are some of the selected reactions:
